2 June: Yoga Teacher Training at Jai Yoga, Cape Town

May 1, 2011


Thursday 2nd of June – Tuesday 6th of December

Teacher Training commences on Thursday 2nd June and finishes on Tuesday 6th December. This is 26 weeks.
It is based on the Ashtanga Primary Series.

The course includes:

Tuesday & Thursday eves at 6:30-8:30pm
Tuesday eves will be Anatomy, Physiology & Theory where we will discuss the asanas in detail and how to teach them.
Thursday eves will be Philosophy & Theory as above.
We will cover Kriyas (yogic cleansing practices) and pranayama.
Towards the end of these sessions we will also teach you how to market yourself as a teacher.

2 sessions per week where you observe classes & progress to assisting where you will learn hands on adjustments for every pose. This will start from day one and where much of your learning will happen. On the job training! For the observing part which will be the first few weeks you can choose any classes on the schedule. Bring pen and paper to take notes at these sessions. For the assisting part the early morning Mysore Sunday – Thursday is the perfect place to learn these valuable skills. When you have learned a few adjustments it will be possible to swap around with other classes on the schedule also again.

Practice a minimum of 5 times per week. This can be at Jai or at home if your schedule does not allow you to make it to the studio.

To become the best teacher you can be, develop a self practice of minimum 2/3 sessions of your yoga practice per week. This might be in the Mysore setting here at Jai or/and at home. As a teacher you will find that ultimately all the gifts you have to give are inside and must come from self observation and study rather than from someone else. This is what makes a great teacher. We will support you and guide you along the way as it is a road we are also travelling.

Entry requirements – A regular yoga practice and absolute commitment to immerse yourself in the training as outlined above.

The cost for the course is R15000. 50% deposit required by the end of April and is non-refundable. Balance payable before the commencement of the course.

Peace and Tranquility
